The EU has the target of generating 20% of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. Member States each have different individual targets to allow this overall target to be met, and they are obliged to provide detailed roadmaps describing how they will meet their legally binding target. The roadmaps contain sectoral targets, the technology mix they expect to use and the trajectory they will follow.
